Ford Escape Models 2005 4WD I would like to know, the light of Emission System is on, What this mean.?

If it's on steady, it means an emissions issue is present. Not a biggie. If flashing, then it's a biggie.
Go to Autozone and have tehm read the failure codes from your computer for free. Then report codes back here.
Remember, sometimes a code is set that is noit caused by the sensor. The sensor is just reporting the porblem. Sometimes it's a basic engine issue, like a lean mixture.

In my 2005 Ford Escape, my check emission system light constantly comes on, but then will shut off randomly. What causes this problem, or could this just be some sort of electrical malfunction?

It is a malfuntion alright
Anytime you get any light on the dash,you got problems
These lights have been on vehicles for 30 years,still there are thousands of people on this site along, who have no clue,no owners manual,and on and on.
Check for the code and have it repaired,won't go away
Part of the Govt's attempt ,for the last 50 years, to cut down on Exhaust Emissions,but people don't care.

Service emission sys warning message on ford scape 2005

if you are saying your check engine or service soon light is on, it's bot a biggie. It just means you are not meeting emissions.

If it is flashing, then you are in need of immediate repair due to too much unburned fuel going to your cataltic converter.
